    Hi Beth,

     

    Yes, MAP has defined targets for MAP sub skill scores. We have a target set that has these defined ranges that we can push into your system if you'd like. Otherwise, you can add the sub skill ranges to any existing target set by setting the main assessments to watch for percentile rank (or any other measure you are monitoring) and all other assessments to monitor the "Adjective" - the Adjective is what is used to give a score to a sub skill range:

    Step 1 - add main assessments to the target set and save. Then, select the option to add all remaining records and watch for the adjective and save.

     

    Step 2 - define the score ranges for the main assessments and then for the remaining records

     

    You will see your main charts have color as well as your sub skill charts and data walls.

     

    Here is a main chart:

     

    Here is a sub skill chart

    NOTE: When setting up the target set, you need to use the same language for both the main assessments and the sub skills. So using language such as "Not Proficient," "Below Readiness," "Proficient," etc. will work the best:

     

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you need any further assistance. 

     

    Thank you,

    Kristin

    Kristin, 

     

    We would appreciate if the MAP target sets/sub skill ranges could be pushed into our system.

     

    Thanks - Beth

    Hi Beth,

    No problem at all. All we will need to do this is having one of your system administrators for eduCLIMBER email ecsupport@illuminate.zendesk.com. Have them request to have the MAP College Proficiency 65%ile pushed into your system. You already have a target set called this, but the sub skills are not added to that one. So this name may have to change when it's pushed into your system (just FYI). Once it is added, you and your team can choose to make that target set the default target set. Doing this will then color your sub skill charts:

     

    If you choose to make this the default, your current benchmark charts will reflect the new score ranges. For example, if you have green starting at the 50%ile, this new target set will make the green range start at the 65%ile. So you may want to go into this newly added target set to update the score ranges. 

     

    You can also choose to forego this option and not make the newly added target set the default. If you do that, individuals can choose to make this traget set their own default by using the Target Sets button either on the District/Grade/My Class tabs or selecting it from the three-line menu found in the upper right corner of the launchpad. Setting a target set in this manner will only change that one user's account so you will see the sub skill charts and data walls colored, but others in the district will see the current default without their charts and data walls colored.

     

    The last option, again, is to add the subskill ranges yourself. This is actually pretty simple to do. Select your default target set, access the Assessments tab, and complete the assessments as follows with the target focus as shown:

     

    Then, access the Score Ranges tab, add the score ranges for the Adjective (that's the sub skill as reported by MAP - they use that language) as shown. You can choose to keep your current ranges for the main assessments (language usage, reading, and math). So you will have 4 sections to complete, one for the adjective (sub skill), one for math, one for reading, and one for language usage. However, the core areas will stay the same as you currently have them set for the target set. The only one that will be different is the one for the adjective. This might be a better route as you won't need to worry about switching the default target set.

     

     

     

    I hope this helps, but feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.

     

    Thank you,

    Kristin

    Can we have STAR sub-skill target sets pushed into our system?

    Hi Heidi,

    STAR reports scores of 0-100 for their sub-skills (this is different than how MAP reports on sub-skills), and districts can use different cutpoints for these sub-skills. To get the sub-skill charts colored by default, then the sub-skills will need to be added to your default STAR target set. We can definitely help you with this. All we will need to know are the cut score ranges you would like to use (if they are different than what you use for STAR Reading and STAR Math or if they should be kept the same). Please email ecsupport@illuminate.zendesk.com to let us know of the cut scores you would like to use and if they differ for each grade level as well as if they differ for each sub-skill.

    Thank you,

    Kristin
